Merit Badge University started 19 years ago with less than 100 Scouts attending. Today, nearly 3,000 Scouts attend this single-day event - making MBU one of the largest in all of Scouting. MBU 2016 will be held at York High School and Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois on February 20th, 2016.  Click here for more information.
Since March 15, 1994, Troop 175 has had the honor to see 37 of it's Scouts rise to the highest rank a Boy Scout can acquire, Eagle Scout. The path to Eagle Scout is a long, challenging path but also rewarding. Troop 175 instills in it's Scouts that their future is their own and only they can know how far they want to go in the program. The Troop never forces or pressures a boy to advance, but it also never turns away a Scout who needs help in achieving their goal, whatever that is. Join Troop 175 and find out how fun Scouts can be!
Did you know that when Sir Robert Baden-Powell founded Scouts in England, they had only had nine points in their Scout Law?  The Boy Scouts of America added the last three: A Scout is brave, clean, and reverent.
Our troop is chartered by the Moose Family Center in Joliet, IL and we are proud to be one of the few Troops that still believes that all boys should be honored to wear the uniform of the Boy Scouts of America.  Our scouts are required to wear the full BSA uniform including shirt, neckerchief, pants, belt and socks.  We believe that all boys should strive to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent, regardless if they are wearing a uniform or not.  This is what makes Troop 175 one of the best Boy Scout troops around!
Boy Scout Troop 175 has a scout trip just about every month. Check out of some of the locations we have been in recent years here.
Boy Scouts is for all boys ages 11-18.  Click here to learn more about joining Troop 175.
